21 Savage Calls Out OGs For Blaming The New Generation For Current Issues In Hip Hop

21 Savage is tired of the older generation of rappers blaming the new wave of artists for what they believe ails hip hop.

The 25-year old Atlanta native penned an open letter via his Twitter account expressing his frustration with the lack of respect he feels the OGs are giving his peers.

"Why do so many of these 'Og Rappers' judge the new generation? They say we make drug user music like making drug selling music is better what's the difference?," he wrote. "What about the fact that rap is the number one music genre right now? None of y'all acknowledge that. Artists have been snorting cocaine and smoking crack since to 70s and 80s. Did y'all forget that?

"Instead of judging how about y'all make a change," he continued. "If the message in the previous generation of rap was so good why did so many of our parents abandon us for crack? Why we still killing each other? Don't use us as the scape goat! Our music is a reflection of what's going on in our community and all we doing is using our talent to escape that community."

21's message comes on the heels of the public feud between Pete Rock and Waka Flocka.

In an interview with Thisis50, Waka blamed the older generation for not helping the younger generation by not offering advice and helping to guide them.

Pete shot back, saying the music coming out lacks substance and he refuses to support it.

If you need to understand why them so called og's music was better it's because first, they they actually lived the life but always advice and tell people it's not the right thing to do secondly they made rap felt real, so if don't live it don't say it thirdly allot of things they disregard is now regarded like being a fien, being gay, doing feminine things etc

Most younger generation don't listen to the OG's. They say "They outta touch" So the OG's watch them f*** it all up wit that wack s*** they put out. Not all youngstaz are wack, but there are some that make Will Smith look like a lyricist!
